1. first and foremost you want to make sure that your child has a good night's sleep that's the best way to start off the day a sleepy child doesn't learn very well at all for children ages 1 to 3 recommend 12 to 14 hours of sleep a disrespect to recommend 10 to 12:00 hours of sleep ages 7 to 12 we recommend 10 to 11:00 hours of sleep infirmities 1218 recommend at least 8 to 9:00 hours of sleep my second day.

3. Backpack safety; do you guys remember going to high school and having that 20 pound backpack on your back we now know that's terrible for children's posture, and they're back they end up having back problems down the line, so we recommend that children have no more than 10 percent of their body weight in their backpack for child that weighs 100 pounds (ca. 45 kg) that's 10 pounds the children to learn to prioritize what they're putting in their backpack and if they find they need to bring home more than the recommended weight hitting a rolling backpack may be a good idea my next appearance is a good hand hygiene as pediatricians are often find those first few weeks of school to be very busy for us as well kids can.

5.
